Portions of the Justice Brandeis Semester (JBS) application are available on the JBS website and the complete application will be available by next week.

Admissions to the program will be on a rolling first-come, first-serve basis beginning Jan. 29.

“The online application will be available shortly but in the meantime, students

will be able to start some of the application pieces, such as the application essay and resume” JBS Manager Alyssa Grinberg wrote in an e-mail to The Hoot.

Additionally, with the aim of boosting publicity and knowledge about JBS, an informational video highlighting the individual programs and their aims has been added to the JBS website.

Students will be notified of their admissions decision two to four weeks after the complete application is received. Programs may reach their capacity far before their final March 15 application deadline therefore it is best to apply as soon as possible, JBS Grinberg explained.

During the first six weeks of the semester, the JBS program will be holding information sessions beginning with Beacon Hill Report on Jan. 26 from 4 to 5 p.m.

The info session will be held in Room 313 of the Shapiro Campus Center. Dates and times for remaining JBS programs will be announced as they are scheduled.
